I've gotten together with some of my blogging friends to bring you The Ultimate Breakfast Giveaway - where one lucky reader will win an assortment of prizes valued at $1000! Ten bloggers were asked to prepare different parts of a breakfast bar using a blender - and I made this quick, easy and delicious Banana Bread Smoothie for the breakfast drink!

I've been trying to make better choices about breakfast, I mean, it is the most important meal of the day. Too many times, I settle for coffee and toast. It's no wonder why I feel like I'm running out of energy by late morning! One way that I have started eating smarter is by trying to incorporate more oatmeal and fruit into my diet. Smoothies and smoothie bowls have been a real blessing for me - and I have  just started getting brave enough to try overnight oatmeal!

I've had an aversion to oatmeal ever since I can remember - I just don't like the thick texture. Either I am over the dislike of the thickness of the oatmeal or the stuff I am making is so freaking delicious that I don't even care. Either way, y'all need to try this Banana Bread Smoothie - it's soooo good!

This smoothie tastes exactly like banana bread! It got a big thumbs up from all of my kiddos, too! While we like the additional sweetness from the raisins or chocolate chips, they are totally optional! This has become one of our favorite breakfasts - so much so, that sometimes my kiddos like it in a bowl with additional sliced bananas and a sprinkling of oatmeal and chocolate chips (or raisins).
